Archiving

For outdoor communities, archives form an enduring record of the individual and collective memory of their members. Fond memories and knowledge hard won can easily fade if they aren’t kept current, or recorded and stored carefully.

The Archiving Plan

To begin or revise a formal archiving process for a club, it helps to create an archiving plan, and seek support from your club executive. Not only will the plan help you keep on track of your progress, but will be invaluable for future archivists (and researchers) after you’re no longer the archivist.
